Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

WASHINGTON " Despite mounting pleas from California and other states, the Trump administration isn't allowing states to use Medicaid more freely to respond to the coronavirus crisis by expanding medical services. In previous emergencies, including the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Hurricane Katrina and the H1N1 flu outbreak, both Republican and Democratic administrations loosened Medicaid rules to empower states to meet surging needs. But months into the current global disease outbreak, the White House and senior federal health officials haven't taken the necessary steps to give states simple pathways to fully leverage the mammoth safety net program to prevent a wider epidemic.

Can't wait for hospitals start charging out the --- to recuperate money from patients they had to treat but didn't get paid for.

Yet again the Trump administration proves human misery and pain means nothing to them.

The Trump administration continues to exacerbate the impacts of the outbreak. Meanwhile, the Trump fans continue to argue that taking the outbreak seriously is "panic" and some MSM/Dem conspiracy to discredit Trump.

Our economy will lose even more production as a result of this policy. Uninsured people are not going to seek medical help because they can't afford it. People who work at grocery stores, gas stations...the stuff we need to function as a society. Very poor choice, Trump.
